Krabat Jockey Plus

In short

Krabat Jockey Plus offers more support and possibilities for adaptations than the Krabat Jockey. The Plus version offers a higher comfort level compared with the traditional Jockey, and provides children with greater need of support all the advantages given by the saddle seat. The chair gives the child the possibility to sit in the abducted hip position for a longer period of time.

The abducted sitting position provides several physiological benefits, and this chair gives the child the opportunity for movement and variation.

The saddle seat promotes a neutral position in the pelvic and abducts the hips. This together with the support given by the footrests ensures stability to the lower body. The upper body is supported with a high backrest, adjustable lumbar support, adjustable side supports and a brand new innovative head support.

Krabat Jockey Plus has a compact and modern design, and can be used in places with limited space. The compact design puts the child in focus, not the chair.

The chair is very light and can be folded to make transport easier. A transport bag can be ordered as an accessory.

The Krabat Jockey Plus is height adjustable and can be adjusted from floor level to the height of a kitchen worktop. The height of the sitting unit can be adjusted by pressing down the integrated operation key on the push handle. The chair is easy to operate, even for inexperienced helpers.

Krabat Jockey Plus is also available with electric height adjustment. The movement is easily controlled with a remote control. The battery is rechargeable, and when fully charged it will last for many days of regular use. Krabat Jockey Plus with electrical height adjustment is only marginally heavier than the manual chair, and has still got the same elegant appearance. Krabat AS can rebuild a manual Krabat Jockey Plus to one with electric height adjustment.

The saddle seat has an integrated cup holder which can also be used to attach a support handle or an adjustable table (accessories). The shape of the saddle seat prevents children from sliding forwards in the chair. This is especially important for children with spasticity. The front of the seat prevents the legs from getting stuck between the table and the seat. A child can wear SWASH orthotics whilst sitting in the chair, and sometimes the saddle seat can help to reduce the need for hip orthotics.

The upholstery is soft and gentle to the skin, but still durable. Spots can be removed using either a cloth and mild soapy water or machine washed at 40 degrees Celsius.

The height of the backrest can be adjusted into 5 different positions. The angle of the backrest can be adjusted infinitely, and the whole sitting unit can be tilted like the traditional Jockey. The side supports can be adjusted infinitely in height and width and the head support can be adjusted in all directions. The Krabat Jockey Plus also has solid attachments for different harnesses. All these possibilities for adaptations make it easy to obtain an optimal sitting position, also for children with greater needs of support.

The chair is black, but with a wide range of colour on the upholstery.

Krabat Jockey Plus has many possibilities for adaptations and is therefore suitable for children with a wide range of diagnosis. The chair is often used by children with CP, and other diagnosis resulting in tight/spastic adductors of the hip.

Krabat Jockey Plus is available in 2 sizes. Size 1, which covers the age of approx 2-7 years, and size 2 which covers approx 8-14 years.

The angle and height of the backrest, and the angle of the sitting unit, can all be adjusted without using tools. So can the height and all positions of the footrests. The side supports and the head supports can easily be adjusted using the accompanying 4 mm Allen key. All angles and positions can be adjusted infinitely, and the footrests can be adjusted separately. The optimal sitting position is not far away.

Hip belt, footrests with straps and side supports are standard. Head support, different harnesses, adjustable table, ankle cuffs, footrest-in-one and bag are accessories.

Krabat Jockey Plus is not a resting chair, but a chair for activities and participation.

Krabat Jockey Plus has a modern design with many possibilities for adjustment. The chair put the child in focus and gives the opportunity for mastering skills and social participation, combined with the abducted sitting position. 

Anatomical benefits

Krabat Jockey provides the child with a balanced and safe sitting position with dynamic postural control which enables the child to move freely.

The sitting position gives optimal joint stability and comfort. The two articular surfaces in the hip joint have maximum contact in the sitting position.

The sitting position can prevent complications such as muscle contractures, hip pain and subluxations.

All major joints in the lower extremities become centered, which promotes normal muscle tone and muscle length. This is particularly important for the adductors, which are often tight in children with spasticity.

The back can work actively in its natural curvature. The saddle seat can be adjusted to allow the pelvis to be placed/tilted in the correct position, giving the child’s back optimal working conditions.

The saddle seat enhances an active seating position rather than a passive.
